Grant Park is currently hosting their “22 Years of SummerDance,” Chicago’s annual outdoor dancing series. This is held from June 28–August 25, a month of celebrating with friends and family.
Friday July 6, SummerDance hosted “Electric DJ Mix” with DJ Jesse De La Pena and Dirty MF. The dance floor was filled with smiles, hips shaking, and feet grooving to the beat of the music. SummerDance brings people together through variety of different music. The groove begins each day with a different genre of music.
SummerDance offers 48 different types of live bands and DJS. From Dabke, Cumbia, and Square Dancing, it is a fun experience to spend time with others. A first-time audience, Alejandra Garcia listened to her favorite 80s throwbacks on Friday.
“This is a lot of fun and I cannot wait to come again for Bachata night” said Garcia. No excuses on not knowing how to dance because SummerDance offers dance lessons before the performance. Show off those summer movies at Grant Park’s free event Summer Dance!
